Machine learning beginning to shape data center infrastructureMay 22, 2018The terms AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) have become common technology buzzwords. Simply defined, AI is applying traits of human intelligence to computers. ML is a subset of AI, where inputs are mapped to outputs to derive meaningful patterns. Businesses and analysts alike are touting how transformative AI and ML can be, fueled by massive amounts of data from the always increasing IoT (internet of things) ecosystem. While other buzzwords have come and gone without much of a tangible impact, AI doesn’t seem to fit into that category. AI is reaching far and wide, from manufacturing floors to supply chain management, and even to the operation of data centers themselves. Many enterprises are still planning and piloting different AI applications to understand how it can transform their businesses, but data centers are already providing an early use case of a successful AI application.
UPS installed base highlights effects of data center consolidationJanuary 29, 2018The data center industry is thriving – so it would seem. Cloud and colocation service providers top the headlines, citing significant double-digit growth and billion-dollar mergers and acquisitions. But not every piece of the data center puzzle is on cloud nine. Suppliers of centralized data center infrastructure, such as UPS, cooling, and power distribution, remain grounded, as data center consolidation, virtualization, and new design trends have absorbed much of the potential growth of our increasingly digital world. As Cloud and colocation service providers are forecast to continue to grow, while data center consolidation continues, should more turbulent times be expected for data center infrastructure suppliers? Possibly, but developing trends of hybrid cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and edge data center deployments provide hope for a brighter future for these infrastructure suppliers.
The line between light and heavy industrial UPS products starting to blurOctober 17, 2017The industrial UPS market competitive landscape is traditionally different from the commercial IT UPS one. This is due to the difference in application and environments used in industrial applications. Commercial IT UPS are near commoditization, with the vast majority IGBT-based, on-line double conversion UPS, with few differentiators between products with little to no customization.
Cloud and colocation service providers drive UPS market to return to growth in 2016August 07, 2017After four straight years of decline for the uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) hardware market, 2016 proved to be the year the market returned to growth, at a rate of 1.6 percent to total $7.4 billion. North America and Asia’s markets grew at the fastest rates, led by large investment from colocation and cloud service providers. EMEA UPS revenues remained relatively flat in 2016, as colocation and cloud services providers grew their footprints while other segments of the market struggled. Latin America’s UPS market continued to contract in 2016, as the region’s markets struggle to overcome political corruption and economic uncertainty.
A struggling industrial UPS market faces uncertain futureMay 31, 2017The world market for Industrial UPS in 2016 totaled $1.64 billion, which was a mid-single-digit decline from 2015, according to a recent study from IHS Markit. A drop in oil prices had a negative effect on UPS sales into the oil, gas & petrochemical applications – with particular downturns being seen in Africa, Brazil, the Middle East and Russia (all heavily oil-dependent economies.) In those regions, where entire economies depend on oil, IHS Markit saw declining UPS sales across many applications (power, medical and transportation) as government and infrastructure spend waned.
As Vertiv releases lithium-ion batteries, is it time to adopt?February 07, 2017Austin, Texas (February 7, 2017) – Today, Vertiv, previously Emerson Network Power, announced the release of lithium-ion batteries for its three-phase UPS range in North America. As the current top supplier of three-phase UPS in North America, and the second major supplier to introduce lithium-ion batteries in this product range (the first being Schneider Electric), UPS applications appear to be revving up for an energy storage revolution. Despite the benefits lithium-ion batteries offer, including saving space and weighing less, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO), and easing maintenance, adoption will still prove challenging as safety concerns and a conservative industry will be hesitant to adopt.
After bumpy 2015, 2016 ushers in growth for UPS service & support marketJanuary 03, 2017Austin, Texas (January 3, 2017)—The UPS service & support market declined -2.0% in 2015, resulting in revenue of $2.975 billion. A declining UPS hardware market, economic headwinds and currency devaluation relative to the US dollar were the main contributing factors to this decline. EMEA declined near double digits as the Euro, Russian Rubble and Turkish Lira all devalued significantly relative to the US dollar. The Americas market was relatively flat while the Asian market for UPS service & support continued to grow the most.
Edge data center series: UPS at the edgeSeptember 07, 2016This is the second analyst insight of a four part series from IHS Markit, in which the Data Center Infrastructure team will explore the potential benefits of edge data centers and what they mean for related infrastructure markets. This insight will focus on how the UPS market is being affected by edge data centers. For an introduction to edge data centers, please see part one of the series, here. The markets still to be assessed are the containerized data center and multi-tenant data center markets.
Edge data center series: IntroductionSeptember 01, 2016This article is the first analyst insight of a four-part series from IHS Markit, in which the Data Center Infrastructure team will explore the potential benefits of edge data centers and what they mean for related infrastructure markets. The markets to be assessed are UPS hardware, containerized data centers, and multitenant data centers.
UPS hardware market contracts 4.3% in 2015, but there is light at the end of the tunnelAugust 03, 2016Austin, Texas (August 3, 2016)—The global UPS market continued its decline in 2015, contracting 4.3% resulting in revenue just under $7.3 billion. Political and economic uncertainties, partially stemming from lower oil prices, have negatively impacted Brazil and Russia in 2015. Brexit has created an economic environment in the European Union riddled with uncertainty and is predicted to have a negative impact on the United Kingdom and greater Eurozone markets through 2017. The Asian UPS hardware market continues to be the lone bright spot, growing further in 2015.
Emerson Network Power to be purchased by Platinum Equity for $4 billionAugust 02, 2016Austin, Texas (August 2, 2016)—Emerson Network Power was scheduled to start operating as a spin-off of Emerson Electric Co. under the name of Vertiv, starting in September. As of August 2nd, 2016, Platinum Equity, an investment firm that specialized in mergers, acquisitions and operations (M&A&O) agreed to purchase Emerson Network Power for $4 billion. This is Platinum Equity’s second acquisition of an Emerson business as it bought a controlling stake in the now branded, Artesyn Embedded Technologies, which specializes in embedded computing and power. Platinum Equity Chairman and CEO Tom Gores spoke about the addition of Emerson Network Power to its company’s portfolio, “It plays to our core strengths. In addition to our capital resources, we will deploy our global operations skills to build on the foundation Emerson created and take this business to another level.”
After a Decade of IHS Coverage the UPS Industry Stands at a CrossroadsAugust 12, 20152015 marks the 10th year IHS (and prior to its acquisition, IMS Research) has been actively collecting statistics on the global Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) market. What began as a modest offshoot of wider power supply coverage, has since blossomed into an entire research group covering critical power and cooling products, services, and data center infrastructure. During that decade the fortunes of the UPS industry has been on a roller coaster of a ride; explosive growth and recession, industry consolidation and fragmenting. Recent years have seen stagnation, prompting many observers to wonder whether a restoration of the glory days awaits or if we are seeing the slow death of a once booming market.
